I have found a few by Khurasan, Rebel Minis, RAFM [a favorite] and a whole bunch of nice looking stuff by companies that appear to be defunct or semi-closed, etc.

Aside from the three I mention, does anyone have some sources for sweet far-future armor? I'm especially interested in hover and grav, as they make life more sci-fi, but cool wheels and treads are worth checking out also, especially since the treads could be left off and something more "grav" put in their place.

Thanks!

Have you checked out GZG? The link is for their infantry

While shipping cost from the UK are bad, the product and speed of the shipment are fantastic. There are at least 5 different nationality's of powered armor, as well as exoskeletons.

They have lots of vehicles also.

Another is Brigade Models link

Brigade Models has a huge range, as well as the Hammer's Slammer's license:

I sell the 6mm and a few of the 15mm here in the US at ScaleCreep.com

Extra Crispy,
thanks for the update that you carry the Brigade Games ranges. I'm just finishing up reading the Hammer's Slammers series while out for some minor surgery.

I was just about to lay an order your way, but noted that much of what you have says "no stock." Do you plan on replenishing those stocks anytime soon?

thanks,

Right-O. Brigades 15mm are very nice. I love the three wheel trucks. He makes lovely terrain, very SF too. Also some extra optional equipment for the vehicles.

Lets not forget dino riding infantry

I did this one up, from Alternative Armies, a Mullo AFV. They also have a tank version. It has a alien look to it, which is what was hard to find.

Warning, the "repulsar version"'s front prongs are very fragile and need reinforcing.

I usually use soap dishes (painted and with greeblies, of course) for grav AFVs or APCs for 25mm troops. If I were playing in 15mm, I would probably be looking at pencil sharpeners.

Plastic Easter eggs come in a variety of sizes and should have some use here, too.

I like Brigade as well and all the stuff I have from them so far is spot on, Old Crow is also good but requires a bit of effort and is UK-based so postage costs kick in. Though if I lived State-side I'd probably be throwing money at Khurasan!

Can't comment on GZG vehicles so much but infantry, drones and accessories and bitz are all excellent as is customer service. I'm fairly certain John has a stash of Spice and uses prescience to put stuff in the post before you know you're going to order it….

Have some Alternative Armies vehicles – mostly older Laserburn ones. They're okay if you like the aesthetic. Customer service also spot on

I also have a bit of a thing for repurposing 1:76th early and preferably obscure Cold War kits.

The Critical Mass range had some vehicles as well but nothing that really stood out for me. Ral Partha sells them now.

GZG has gotten very slow, I have an order and it's still listed as processing since Jan.

Don't know if this applies?

@Maggot

I keep my stock of the 15mm very lean but let me know what you need….
